Dr. LingSze Lee

  • Former Graduate Student
I completed my PhD in 2020 in the Interdepartmenal Genetics and Genomics program. For my Master's degree I studied human chromosome sequence variation. My PhD dissertation included cytogenetics studies on the evolution of sex chromosomes and genome organization in turtles.
